Oil on canvas.
Bottom right signed and dated. 80.5 x 120 cm (31.6 x 47.2 in).

• Fascinating landscape, in which Mönsted delivers proof of his virtuoso technique
• Mönsted developed his own, hyper-realistic representation, a prime example of the reciprocity and the competition between photography and painting in Modernism

We are grateful to Galerie Paffrath, Düsseldorf, for the kind support in cataloging this lot.

PROVENANCE: Private collection Schleswig-Holstein (presumably acquired from the artist in 1912, ever since family-owned).
